Los Charros's Bio

Authentic Mexican and Latin American music.

Los Charros is a group of versatile and talented professional musicians who perform authentic folk and popular music that reflects the true sound of their native Latin America.

Whilst specialising in traditional Mexican and Colombian songs, from soft and romantic boleros to foot stamping Mexican rancheras, Los Charros’ extensive repertoire includes popular music from across the Latin American continent – from traditional folk songs to the vibrant dance rhythms of the rumba and cumbia. Blending vocal harmonies with a variety of string and percussion instruments, they produce a range and quality of sound rarely heard outside Latin America and are universally acknowledged to be the leaders in their field.

So, whether you would like some slow romance or a full-blooded Mexican fiesta, Los Charros are guaranteed to set the mood and make your event one to remember!

Since their formation in 1991, Los Charros have appeared at venues and events including:

The House of Lords & The House of Commons
Channel 4: Without Walls and The Big Breakfast
Odeon, Leicester Square – Gala performances: Como Agua para Chocolate and Fierce Creatures
The British Museum: ‘Skeleton at the Feast’ Exhibition
The World Travel Market at Earls Court
Christian Aid: National Conference Launch (1991 & 1992)
The Sheraton Skyline, Heathrow; The Berkeley Hotel, Mayfair

They perform regularly in hotels, clubs and restaurants; at weddings and private parties; at corporate and diplomatic functions and at Latin American events of all kinds.

The group offers a variety of formats, ranging from soloists and duos through to a six piece band, and wear full traditional costume for their performances including the option of Mariachi costumes.
